Summary

  • Wolfsburg into final days of China tour.
  • Bundesliga club to face PSV Eindhoven in friendly.
  • Local fans get chance to train with their heroes in Zhuhai.

VfL Wolfsburg's tour of China is drawing to a close as they reach the third and final station of their Bundesliga world tour journey.

It was a case of packing the suitcases and setting off once again on Friday morning, as the Wolves prepared their penultimate day of a post-season tour of China. After being granted a day off on Thursday to visit the city of Macau, have a game of beach volleyball or just to rest and relax, the bus was waiting to pick Dieter Hecking's men up bright and early for a trip to Zhuhai, where the final game of their tour against Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven will be played on Saturday at 10:00GMT.

The fans were out to greet Wolfsburg on their arrival in Zhuhai.

While Macau and Zhuhai may only be separated by five miles, the journey took close to two hours as the Wolves left the isolated fiscal paradise and faced two border controls before arriving at their new home for two nights, and they were greeted by several hundred fans. Like on their arrival in Changchun, there was plenty of applause and the now habitual storm for autographs and photos as the Wolfsburg players stepped off the bus.

Some local kids had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train with their heroes.

Without much time for a rest, Hecking and Bas Dost were facing the media's questions at a press conference ahead of the clash with PSV, for whom former Borussia Mönchengladbach forward Luuk de Jong was a familiar face at their press conference. After which, one further training session got the Wolves fit and ready for Saturday's Zhuhai Stadium clash, with some local kids given the pleasure of taking part in the session. It was then dinner and bed as Wolfsburg head into the final day of their China visit, prepared to put more smiles on the locals' faces before returning home.
